    Rune Tattoo Question

    I am planning, soon, on getting a runic tattoo of the word "theudiskaz" representing my German heritage back through the ages. I have come up with a 9 character Runeword, from the Futhark. I heard that I should use a diphthong character for the "eu", but I was told I should use the "yew-tree" rune for this diphthong, even though nothing I have seen suggests that the "yew-tree" diphthong applies to anyhting except "ae". I was wondering if any of you would have any possible advice, or knowledge you could pass on to me.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, brothers and sisters.

    I dont know what you mean with yew-tree, but Eihwaz or the "Wolfsangel" rune is the diphthong ei (as the name implies) and also eu.

    I've attached you an image with two alternatives, both written with the elder futhark though. For a tattoo I would chose the one which you visually like more, after all, you have it for the rest of your life

    I had a design nearly identical to the secondary "spelling".

    I will look over and carefully think heavily about which design.

    My other arm has "Hallelujah" and the second design has 9 characters, so they match a bit closer, on the other hand, I would likely prefer a more correct version.

    I would assume, then, that the diphthong'd version is technically more correct?

    Also, thank you very, very much for your help and support!

    Hmm, I'm not sure, but I would guess that theudiskaz comes from teutonic (or something along that)? In that case only the th is diphthong, the e and u are real characters.

    That's a reasonable guess, and I saw the similarity too. Well, it sounds like I'm on my own, but that's ok, I know why I'm getting it, and what it means, and that's the important part. Though I don't look particularly forward to trying to explain it to my coworkers, and friends, who don't seem to understand the extent of my Germanic pride, oh well.

    Thanks velvet, you've been extremely helpful!

    You're welcome

    Well, explaining runes to people who never saw that, let alone have an idea about the backgrounds could be quite difficult, hehe

    Post a photo when you got your tattoo, please

    Yeah, I went and got it done at about 4:00 pm yesterday (central time, so, about 16 hours ago). I had planned on getting "Deutschland" in the same font as on my other forearm for a few weeks, so I was pretty much set to go get it done, when this, superior, idea came up. Yes it is on the inside, so it runs along, and over my veins.

    It doesn't actually hurt that bad, I've had my other forearm done for a few weeks now, so I can still remember that.

    Thank you, I am pretty pleased with it as well. Now that I have taken the bandage thing off, I took another photo with both forearm tattoos.
